union members who like to be there. and on the republican side there's a lot of overzealous supporters on our side, but i think that alone brings different dimensions. not in every state. but that's something that we had voters say i don't feel comfortable walking past or don't feel comfortable walking in or whatever that is. that shouldn't be the case for anybody. it's not a massive problem. it's not in the double-digit percentage, but anytime anyone feels uncomfortable going into polling location, that's something we take to heart. a lot of the same things. one of the points, segue, i know we'll go back and forth on the length of lines but one step that comes back is there's roughly, roughly 300,000 more voters this time in 2008. 6200 precincts, 5300 polling locations, clearly less early vote days but even these polling locations don't necessarily, they are not jampacked 12 hours a day. while i do agree the lines are longer, i just don't necessarily think that it was because of regulations or because of someone trying to nefariously suppress the vote. i think it literally
